Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Oct. 5) -- MNF/NBC mostly in charge

CBS’ The Big Bang Theory as usual put a dent in their dominance before ESPN’s Monday Night Football and NBC’s The Voice applied the ratings hammer.

Big Bang was D-FW’s top draw from 7 to 7:30 p.m. Monday in both total viewers (389,532) and advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds (133,379).

The Voice then won in total viewers from 7:30 to 9 p.m., edging the MNF game -- Seahawks vs. Lions -- during those 90 minutes. But MNF led throughout the rest of the night with 18-to-49-year-olds.

At 9 p.m., NBC’s Blindspot and CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles tied for the lead among non-football attractions with 226,637 total viewers apiece. Blindspot won comfortably in the 18-to-49 demographic in the Big Four broadcast network competition.

Monday’s least-watched attraction by far again was Fox’s Minority Report. Airing in the 8 p.m. hour, it drew just 56,659 total viewers and 19,054 in the 18-to-49 realm. Monday Night Football in comparison averaged 318,708 total viewers for the entire game and 174,664 in the 18-to-49 motherlode.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 won at 10 p.m. in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 and NBC5 tied for the total viewers lead at 6 a.m., with Fox4 alone on top with 25-to-54-year-olds.

The Peacock ran the table at 6 p.m. and added a 5 p.m. win in total viewers. NBC5 shared the 5 p.m. gold with CBS11 in the 25-to-54 demographic.
